The nautical trend is hot for spring. However, you don’t have to start wearing striped tops or sailor dresses to get into this trend. You can do it subtly with a great pair of nautical shoes.
Partner nautical-inspired footwear with whatever you are wearing, from white eyelet dresses to crisp capris.
Tory Burch Two-Tone Elastic Espadrille Wedge
These shoes combine some of the season’s hottest fashion trends — the wedge heel and the nautical look. This navy/cream striped sandal can be paired with contrasting patterns (like polka dots or florals) for a unique spring style that can’t be beat. Get these Tory Burch espadrille wedges at Bergdorf Goodman for $175.00.
